Technology has created the illusion that today’s worker feel “highly connected” to one another, when in reality most feel isolated from their colleagues. What they crave most–and what research increasingly shows to be the hallmark of the highest-performing workplace cultures–is a sense of authentic connection with others.
In my interview with author Dan Schawbel the author of the new book ” Back to Human-How Great Leaders Create Connection in the Age of Isolation” we discuss how he is helping the next generation of leaders create a workplace where teammates feel genuinely connected, engaged and empowered–without relying on technology. ”
In Dan’s research with 100’s of top young leaders they revealed that technology as a double-edge in that it helps improve operational efficiencies and keeps us constantly connected, but at the cost of human touch. Young leaders see technology as a way to push information out quickly and efficiently, yet as the same time it can make the workplace more dysfunctional.
